Philadelphia Eagles eager to play games that count

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - September 7, 2011

The defending NFC East champions were the talk of the NFL after a wild free-agent spending spree that brought several big-name players to Philadelphia and raised expectations to super proportions.

Now is the time to prove it on the field.

"We know we have a lot of talented guys," wide receiver Jeremy Maclin said Wednesday. "We know if we do what we're capable of and play to our abilities, then we can achieve what we want to achieve. But we have to go out there and do it."

The Eagles open at St. Louis on Sunday.
